RV Generator Maintenance

RV Generators 

  When it comes time to use your RV generator you do not want to run into any trouble, here are a few tips that will help you avoid a breakdown.

Regular Maintenance: Following the maintenance schedule listed in your owners manual (I can send you a copy of that so you have it handy just send me a message)

 Keeping it Clean: dirt and sand build up inside the generator is somewhat normal as the conditions they are run in often lead to dusty air getting pulled around the generator for cooling and over time leaving behind some sand and dirt.  That build up leads to corrosion related problems.  A simple solution is to used compressed air or a shop vac to blow and in and around the generator to help remove any loose debris, doing this once or twice a year will go a long way in helping extend the life of your generator

Running it Regularly: over time gasoline breaks down and leaves the inside of your fuel system cover in a varnish and sometimes a thick jelly like substance that prevents the correct generator operation. When a generator is only run for short periods of time (less than 30 minutes) and then left unused for extended periods of time (more than 6 months) the fuel that is sitting inside its fuel system breaks down causing havoc with the fuel system.  To  avoid this insure that you run your generator with a load on like cooking a bunch  of pizza pockets in the microwave oven :) or the air conditioner for 60-90 minutes when your RV comes out of storage and then again before it goes back into storage.  This will help use up ant fuel that was sitting in the generators fuel system and draw in fresh fuel from the vehicles fuel tank
